    My flying external temperature is around 70 degrees. The fan air is quite warm. I'm having flashbacks of my PC dying due to fans crapping out. Lol

    i just became aware it had a fan...honestly if it does go out i hope it wouldn't fry anything...seeing as the mavic will be flying and air should be able to get into those vents...seems like it would cool just by that unlike a playstation that just sits there...yours just might not be meeting the requirements to turn on like temp and stuff...not sure it's the first time i heard of a fan being in a drone...guess ill see when i get mine

    also 70 degrees doesn't rlly seem to be a temp you'd rllly need it to pop on with...my computer fan usually is on pretty low around that temp until it hits 80 or so

    Yeah, that's why it's a little unsettling that it seems like the fan is always on.

    It's got compact electronics... air moving is important. My P4 fan is always on

    Ok thanks, I only had a P3S, didn't know the P4 had a fan too.

    I'm surprised there's a fan in the RC!
